The flavours are full and rich, yet subtle, The service was outstanding, very friendly, and pretty quick, even when the place was full. The atmosphere is friendly and suggestions fror dishes were terrific. Great value too.

I ate here just a couple of times. The portions are quite large and what I had was very good. I'm not sure if it's still the same but there was a time when you had to make a reservation on the weekend. The Olive Tree has a very solid reputation. I am local and have never heard anything negative.... More

This is one of the best places to dine in Sydney. It isn't a large place so make sure you have a reservation! Enjoy!
